    5 Stars All Round

    Lynne was great, from the moment I contacted her to picking up my dress. She was kind and totally calmed my anxieties about my dress alterations. Her prices were extremely reasonable for the amount of lace detail that my dress needs and I have already recommended her to a few friends who are getting married next year. Thanks so much, Lynne for making me feel great on my day!

    Blue Skirt Bliss

    Lynne is absolutely the dress guru. Everything about working with her from her punctual responses, adorable and artsy abode/workshop, her sassy confidence and clear pride of craftsmanship instilled in me the utmost faith in customizing my two piece dress into a unique and beautifully fitted dress and blue overlay skirt. She came in early, on price and with great enthusiasm. I'm so grateful to her for her work in helping to make my day so magical. I highly recommend her!

    Ah-mazing job

    Where to start? From the moment I contacted Lynn she was so nice and accommodating. I had a bunch of questions about a dress I wanted to buy off a buy and sell and she was no short of answers. Fast forward a couple weeks and Lynn met me in Calgary in a small gross bathroom to make sure my dream dress was able to be altered and that there were no problems with it as I was buying from somebody and not a store. We laughed and joked and got a long so easily. With the wedding coming up I had to bring it in for alterations and let me tell you there was a lot of work having to be done. Not once did she complain or make me feel bad it was actually the complete opposite. My fiancé and I really like grilled cheese sandwiches and it ended up making my dress not zip up all the way so I was an emotional wreck and she calmed me down and at the end of the day she made my dress look beautiful. She also made my a vail which matched it perfectly and held up all day. If I could describe Lynn in one word it would be amazing and I am so glad I went with her.

    So very happy!!

    Could not be happier with my dress!!! I’m getting married in a week from today and felt absolutely amazing trying it on after Lynne had worked her magic on it. The alterations made all the difference. Would highly recommend her to future brides-to-be :)
